We hiked about two-thirds of the way around the walk and thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon. By coincidence the only other walkers we met were English - 'mad dogs and Englishmen out in the midday sun'? Part of the route was reasonably steep, so it probably...More

The Anello della Rupe or Ring around the Rock can be an adventure or a strenous walk. It can be accessed from several points, the easiest being the entrance from Piazza Marconi and Palazzo Crispo Marsciano. You will note a large map of Orvieto on...More

I walked the corso twice in two days - clockwise, then anticlockwise. Allow just over two hours of moderately strenuous walking and just laugh when you lose your way. Sign posts appear to have been torn down. It's worth stopping to catch your breath at...More

This walk circumnavigates the old town of Orvieto and would take a few hours to do the entire thing. We expected a walk offering wonderful views up to the town and interspersed with historic sites on the way. The reality was a little less exciting...More

Best to start at the daily parking lot; 2nd option is by funicular. Mostly paved. Has signs that have red/white rectangle, but it needs to be better marked - the city maps can help you (glossy map with black lines for Rupe is best). There...More

Take this walk on a nice day, but some parts are a bit difficult and it's hard to tell which way to go at times (stay close to the wall). My husband found a walking stick which was very helpful The views are lovely. We...More

This walk takes you around the outside of Orvieto. You can see some sites and some nature on a clear nice day.

After many visits to Orvieto we finally did this hike. Pretty nature walk, great views and historically very interesting with hidden churches in caves and Etruscan sites.

It was kind of nice to get out for a nature walk; however, we ran into some trouble at one part when we were following the path along the base of the city walls and the path kept getting more and more overgrown. Finally we...More

The walk around the whole base is about 5km and very interesting. You can see a number of historical sites along the walk although access to most of the caves is not possible. You can get some good views of the surrounding area as well...More

Not a bad "walk" around the base of the city. Unfortunately the city seems to have ignored it as a tourist spot. Not well keep and scattered trash in many spots...especially where kids throw paper airplanes off of the Rocca. About 5k and up and...More
